DiscGolf Wilmette started this petition to Wilmette Park District Board

Disc Golf is a wonderful sport that is enjoyable by people of all ages.

Played similar to traditional golf, players attempt to throw plastic discs into special metal baskets with collector chains. Players track their score against an established par.

It is estimated to be less than $10,000 to install and maintain a nine hole course in Wilmette. This makes Disc Golf one of the most affordable new recreational opportunities we can bring to our community. In addition, Disc golf course are very low impact on the environment. Further, disc golf courses routinely co-exist with other common park uses such as dog walkers, bikers, and joggers. 

Many communities throughout greater Chicagoland already know the benefits of having their own disc golf course and it is time Wilmette joins the fun. Disc golf can be played by the young and old, as well as differently abled individuals.

Wilmette has several promising sights where a disc golf course can be established, such as Gilson Park, Centennial Park, or the Community Playfield. Final selection of a course location as well as course layout would made by the Wilmette park district board in conjunction with Park District staff and would include community input.

At this time we need to make our voices heard so the Wilmette Park District board knows the residents of Wilmette want to bring disc golf to our community.
